Joseph H. Schenck introduced his Mandrake Pills in 1836, stating “that persons who keep their insides clean, as nature intended, are less susceptible to these ailments than those who allow their system to become clogged with toxic poison, which is preventable.” The pills were reportedly rather bitter, but by the 1860’s had been sugar coated to make them more palatable.
